Through the Looking-glass and What Alice Found There

by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898)

The sequel to “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” finds Alice back in Wonderland and a pawn in a surreal chess game. This weird and wonderful book includes the poems “Jabberwocky” and “The Walrus and the Carpenter,” a talking pudding, and that immortal line “Jam yesterday, jam tomorrow, but never jam today.” Lewis Carroll was the nom de plume of Charles Dodgson (1832-1890) an Anglican clergyman, photographer, and mathematician.

    1. I think I like Through the Looking Glass better than I do Wonderland, because it is clever and funny on several levels. I love the concept of Alice moving across a chess board to become a queen and all the chess related details. There are several memorable characters, but I think the White Knight may be my favorite.
